Minnesota’s Angel Tax Credit provides a 25-percent credit to investors or investment funds that put money into startup companies focused on high technology, new proprietary technology, or a new proprietary product, process or service in specified fields.

Recapping the Year? Perhaps a tad……but first: Happy Holidays to All from Dignity by Design!

Wreath2

First and foremost:
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all and may we all have Enough….

May the holidays enlighten us to diversity, and usher in a new year of Dignity for all!

As for this year and Dignity by Design: We’ve had our ups and downs. It continues to be a challenge to enlighten the financial community on the importance of disability services and products for the disabled, veterans and elderly.  When I say may we all have Enough….I mean that we should all have enough dignity, enough respect, enough joy and enough Ability to love ourselves and feel blessed with what we do have…..

It’s not easy in these tough economic, employment and Social Media crazed times to be
grateful for the hard times, the sick times, the lonely times and the times of loss.  So with the Holidays upon us, I wish you Enough…. enough strength, love and fortune to anticipate 2015 with hope and a renewed joy!

Bummer…I’m being killed by chemicals.

Monsanto

Why is our FOOD being chemically altered by Monsanto?

Why is all of our cable & internet service being provided by Comcast and Time Warner?

Why is the broadcasting of the President’s addresses to the United States controlled by the broadcasting stations?

Everything we do, hear and PAY for is “offered” to us by the monopoly’s. We VOTE it in  !*!#

We are definitely ripe for “Soylent Green“….so let’s just lay down and wait….(while we complain on Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and Instagram and…and….and)Monsters

Crowdfunding. Where do you stand??

cf

So much is written about, blogged about (and posted on every site imaginable about) Crowdfunding.

There are experts with webinars (I’ve personally attended my fair share) – experts at the podium and experts on the street corner (AKA: Will work for….).

I, too, have a Crowdfunding post/site….which, by all accounts, is not doing well:  http://www.gofundme.com/dignitybydesign

I really don’t know why.  The facts are:

  • I do need the funds, pursuing a dream (even the most noble) isn’t cheap and can be seriously devastating to your finances.
  • I have a lot of friends and followers
  • I’m up against the BIG DOGS and they are ruthless

So what are your thoughts dear readers?

Are we just so deluged by scammers, opportunists, the hard hit economy, elections and politics – to recognize an authentic need…even if it’s your neighbor next door?

Are you a Celebrity? Do you have a disability (visible or not)? Well then UNITE!!

Celebrities
Living with a Disability Unite!

I believe that every Physically Disabled Individual  should have the right of Independence and Dignity….Don’t you? Don’t we all??

AND.I’ve got a crazy idea:

WHAT IF.…Celebrities living with a disability came together in Support, Partnering or as a Team in making disabled fashion their OWN?  Each with their OWN individual STAMP on the styling of garments for this amazing populace??  Cool huh???

DIGNITY by DESIGN: “Brilliant Apparel for the Physically Challenged and all Disabilities”
We NEED you…. And isn’t it Personal to you?

Millions of Americans living with a disability have nowhere to turn for fashionable
clothing. NO Where – but Dignity by Design

Singly or as a Celebrity group YOU can make this happen.
YOU can be part of something greater!  AND  Your name will
live on  – not only as a Star but as a legacy STAR MAKER.
I believe…..

           There are 2 ways you can support and make a difference or just CALL me!!!
